Otterly ready for a cup of tea!

 I'd like to take this chance to remind you of the challenges at Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, and if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Close To Nature', I chose to do a Father's day card and used this Otter, because it's a masculine card I kept it quite simple.

We have sponsorship this Month from Chocolate Baroque, a Wild Meadow A4 stamp set and cling a ling

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Cute Card Thursday - #530 - Great Outdoors

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is an easy one 'Anything Goes' So you can use any stamp for this challenge.  I went with this Tea Cozy stamp and made my Mum a birthday card for July and went with pretty florals with the paper and embellies.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafts U Love, and Rare Earth Stamps . Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your animal stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Now if you would like to be a GDT for us, all you need to do is make a creation to fit the theme following our rules.

Are you wanting some inspiration, pop on over to the challenge blog and then you can see all the wonderful creations from the rest of the talented team.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. 2 Crafty Critters Crazies - #14 - Anything Goes
